    Mr. Bartlett’s assumptions seriously bother me, but only because I fear he’s right that the welfare state will continue until the total collapse of the United States simply because the public has indeed reached the point of voting themselves largess from the public treasury, and won’t stop.

    Like watching a slow-motion train wreck, knowing what is coming doesn’t make any difference.

    The late, great Harry Browne would often be heard making his great libertarian offer. He would ask his listeners whether they would be willing to trade in their favorite government program for the ability to never have to pay income taxes. His audience would ponder this question for a brief moment and the vast majority would answer yes. Most of them also felt compelled to mention that they could not name any favorite government program.

    Social Security and Medicare recipients won't bite the hand that feeds them. In conversations with elders I found many are trapped by debt. The largest banks made equity loans/second mortgages easily available because they have "secured gov. checks in the mail." Elders believe that all possible medical care MUST be FREE OF CHARGE. There is a pervasive "I paid my share" belief. How do you explain "inflation' to them so that they can help themselves? They are the largest voting block.

    Neither will our military personnel refuse pay increases. Young military families are in debt to the 4.5% military mortgage. The rate was good, but as was the pattern of the Real Estate bubble, he home was overvalued. Will any Congressman vote against a military pay increase in wartime?

    Remember the "Giant Sucking Sound?" of industries being lost? Now, we are primarily a "service" culture serving the elderly medical industry and the military industrial complex. Neither are growth industries.

    Indeed…the runaway train analogy is accurate.

    Yes, I got a reply from Robert Higgs of the Independent Institute in a correspondence that the Welfare State is here to stay for that very reason.

    This was probably the best show of freedom watch. Informative and entertaining.
